    8:00 PM

    Teapsips
    Louis Lopez & Joshua Gerowitz
    Tatsuya Nakatani, Vinny Golia & Patrick Shiroishi

    Tatsuya Nakatani is an avant-garde percussionist, composer, and artist of sound. Active internationally since the 1990s, Nakatani has released over 80 recordings and tours extensively, performing over 150 concerts a year. His primary focus is his solo work and his large ensemble project, the Nakatani Gong Orchestra. He teaches master classes and lectures at universities and music conservatories around the world. Originally from Japan, he makes his home in the desert town of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. With his activity in new music, improvisation, and experimental music, Nakatani has a long history of collaboration.
    Nakatani's distinctive music centered around his adapted bowed gong, supported by an array of drums, cymbals, and singing bowls. In consort with his personally hand-carved Kobo Bows, he has spent decades refining and developing his sound as an arrangement of formations of vibrations, incorporated in shimmering layers of silence and texture. Within this contemporary work, one can still recognize the dramatic pacing, formal elegance and space (ma) felt in traditional Japanese music.

  • Synchromy Opera Festival
    Boston Court Pasadena
    7:00 PM

    In partnership with Boston Court and Outpost Concert Series, the inaugural Synchromy Opera Festival delivers an inglorious, dynamic take on this digital life. In Vera Ivanova’s comic opera, The Double, the troubled hero believes that his digital social profile is acting independently in an attempt to take over his life. For librettist Sarah LaBrie, this operatic re-imagining of Dostoevsky’s classic novel is newly relevant, as “many of us are coming to terms with what it means to be a citizen of a country founded on a dream that clashes glaringly with the reality many of us confront.” Directed by Alexander Gedeon, The Double features Brightwork Ensemble conducted by Marc Lowenstein.

    Roman, Ian Dicke’s multimedia opera in two acts, questions the morality of designing intelligent machines to exhibit human behaviors. The central character, an AI assistant, is performed by a sung robotic voice and appears as a projection on a scrim. Director June Carryl says, “In Roman, what's toxic is giving ourselves wholesale to tech without boundaries, without a sense of right and wrong, only logical conclusions.” Conductor Thomas Buckley and the Koan Quartet accompany the human and virtual performers.

  • Mon Laferte
    Walt Disney Concert Hall, 111 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90012, USA
    8:00 PM

    Singer and songwriter Mon Laferte is one of the most revered, respected, and beloved musicians in Chile today. Her music brings together the sonic traditions of her native country and that of Mexico, where she lives, with the maximalist punch of globally minded pop, while her lyrics powerfully address the issues facing women, people of color, and the impoverished in Latin America. Defiantly outspoken, she’s also the winner of four Latin Grammys, including most recently Best Singer Songwriter Album, for her 2021 album Seis. Written in the mountains of Tepoztlán, Mexico, and inspired by both Mexican singer Chavela Vargas—whose songs freely celebrated love between women—and by the 2019 protests against human rights abuses in Chile, the album was also nominated for a 2022 Grammy Award. Her most recent album, 1940 Carmen, released in October 2021, is a snapshot of her time in Los Angeles, during the first semester of that year.

    8:30 PM

    The Grammy Award winning PARTCH Ensemble returns to REDCAT with two world premieres. Having given the virtual premiere choreography of Harry Partch’s “Castor & Pollux” at REDCAT in June 2021, the “wonderful rollicking” (New York Times) Sarah Swenson & Vox Dance Theatre return for a live performance of the entire triptych of Plectra & Percussion Dances, the composer’s 45-minute “Evening of Dance Theatre” that has never been choreographed in its entirety since being written 70 years ago. Then the ensemble partners with the “luminous yet corporeal” (Los Angeles Times) Del Sol Quartetin Taylor Brook’s One Footed for string quartet and Partch instruments, paying homage to Harry Partch’s “One-Footed Bride” chart that explores the expressive qualities of “emotion,” “power,” and “suspense” inherent in his exquisitely tuned musical universe.
